It seems to me that we live in the age of the unserious. It’s as if the things that really matter are dismissed as trivial, whilst the trivial assumes cosmic importance. Take California;

In a potentially threatening blow to California’s porn industry voters have passed a measure that will require condom use during production despite fear it could put Los Angeles’ porn industry dually under wrap.

Passed by 55.9 per cent of voters on Tuesday, Measure B will additionally raise fees in adult film productions potentially driving out the industry from L.A., according to the ballot’s opposition. ‘The effect would be simply to have no scenes, or much, much fewer scenes shot in Los Angeles,’ John Stagliano, also known as ‘Buttman’ who owns Evil Angel, one of the nation’s top porn production companies, told Buzz Feed before the measure’s passing.

Now, I am not saying this idea is not without merit BUT there are some rather more important issues affecting the good people of the Golden State. For example, this.

“California’s state government had 9.3 percent more employees in 2011 than it did 10 years earlier – closely tracking overall population growth – but its payroll costs had jumped by 42.4 percent, according to a new Census Bureau report.”

California residents are NOT earning 42.4% more than they did prior to 9/11. But the State Government just keeps on giving.

It’s not porn which we need protection from but Government. However the State is a rock solid base for liberals and so they vote for gay marriage, for mandatory condom use, and for higher taxes on the successful. California is the future – a State where the State deals with the trivial and ignore the important.

Amazing stuff from Jerry Brown in California.

A week after increased revenue estimates looked to frustrate Gov. Jerry Brown’s case for higher taxes, a Supreme Court ruling requiring California to reduce its prison population may help. Brown said in a prepared statement that shifting certain offenders from state prisons to county facilities, as Brown proposes in his budget, is “key” to implementing the court’s order today that California reduce its prison population by more than 30,000 inmates. “We must now secure full and constitutionally guaranteed funding to put into effect all the realignment provisions,” he said, a reference to his bid for a ballot measure extending higher taxes.

I love the idea in the first sentence that “increased revenue estimates” may “frustrate” Brown’s plan to tax people some more. Like all good leftists, Brown believes that if only you raise taxes then you solve problems. But in this case what is surreal is that the excuse being offered up to those people facing tax hikes is that it is essential if prisoners are to be facilitated!!!!

California needs LOWER taxes. It does not need to have the imagined needs of convicts transformed into a reason for punishing those who actually go out and work hard.  That said, those who VOTED for Brown deserve all that comes their way.

Fiscal Armageddon

By ATWadmin On May 29th, 2009 at 5:20 am

California — Republican Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger recently presented voters with a false choice: more taxes, or cuts in essential services.  This is a false choice because an increase in essential services are not the cause of California’s record deficits.

 California’s financial problems are political problems.

Our budget woes are chiefly caused by government employee unions exercising monopoly control over Democrat lawmakers in Sacramento.

Wealthy public employee unions hire hundreds of professional lobbyists and their professional staffs; these lobbyists work 24/7 in Sacramento to represent the public employee union interests and advocate on their behalf. Individual citizens lack this kind of advocacy, and Sacramento lacks a balance of power.

On “The John and Ken Show” talk radio show, yesterday, I heard that California public employee pension plans are mandated by law to increase annually…regardless of any downturn in the  financial markets!  If the market is bad, the taxpayer picks up the slack, and the public employee’s pension increases in value!

Governor Schwarzenegger threatened California with Fiscal Armageddon before the last special election;he threatened  less firemen, fewer police, the early release of dangerous prisoners, overcrowded schools.  I expect we will see more of this political fear mongering in the days to come.

Normally, these scare tactics would pay off, and  voters  would agree to increase taxes. But these are not normal times; voters have had enough. It’s time for change in California, even if it means bankruptcy.

Well, who would have thought this? Traditional marriage has been deemed as "unconstitutional" by the Californian Supreme Court! In a victory for the wacko-activist left the court said amongst other things..

"Retaining the traditional definition of marriage and affording same-sex couples only a separate and differently named family relationship will, as a realistic matter, impose appreciable harm on same-sex couples and their children…"

So —despite the fact that the overwhelming majority of people understand marriage to be between a man and a woman, the Californian Supreme Court has concluded that the very institution is in itself unconstitutional. How much longer before marriage between "opposite-sex" couples is banned?

There’s No Such Thing As The Nanny State

Take a state legislature that’s dominated by neocoMs, add a healthy measure of moonbats, then swirl with a RINO governor and you can reasonably conclude how this will turn out.

State to Look Closer at Caffeine as Health Hazard

A state environmental health committee Monday voted to further study the stimulant caffeine for possible inclusion on California’s list of substances known to cause cancer or reproductive harm.

By law, the governor must publish an updated Proposition 65 list of harmful chemicals each year. Inclusion on the list also requires that the chemicals be publicly posted and also appear on product labels.

The earliest the Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment’s Developmental and Reproductive Toxicant Identification panel make a decision on adding caffeine to the list would be next year. The Proposition 65 designation would only apply to products with caffeine added artificially, not naturally-occurring caffeine products like coffee and tea. Five of seven committee members would have to approve the listing.

The committee has already looked at caffeine research for the last 10 years and found studies associated the chemical to reproductive problems.

The American Beverage Association defends caffeine consumption, citing the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and the March of Dimes as saying up to two cups of coffee daily — including for pregnant women — is a safe amount.
